It takes a steely determination and great effort on our part to begin to recognise our emotions, but we only ever take stock when we hit rock bottom. The rest of the time we tend to cruise without giving our emotions a second’s thought.
Unfortunately, until we’re consciously aware, weren’t not aware. As we go about our daily lives, we continue to assume and take our emotions for granted without stopping to think or question where we’re at, until such a time we reach boiling point and then we let rip.
Perhaps, we need to continually free up our emotions so that we have an easier time focusing. I think that’s part of the problem, we’re just not doing it. Unfortunately, when we’re heading towards a meltdown, we don’t seem to be able to consciously stop ourselves. It starts with the psychological and then morphs into the physical.
It depends on what rock bottom means to each of us. Hitting rock bottom may not always be a bad thing. It just means it’s the beginning of us having to question everything that we need to question to bring about change. That what we’re doing isn’t working.
Sometimes we don’t even know we’re there until we’re there, by which time it’s often too late. The irony is that it’s never too late, we just need to adjust our sails to meet life’s demands, so that we don’t succumb to hitting rock bottom.
